Townes Van Zandt Lyrics


LOVER'S LULLABY  by Townes Van Zandt (as recorded on "The Highway Kind"
===============                                      and mistitled "A Song

[Intro:]  C G F C G C

           C                      G                   F
  The dreams that have flown down the hall
C                               F                C
  The tears that were sown on despair
Am                     C
  Summer turned Fall
           F              C
  It don't matter at all
              Am                    F           C
  When I wake and find you  lying there
              G               F               C
  Sweet silence and soft auburn hair

  Oh, the blues gonna' dance through the sky
  Time's gonna' roll soft as rain
  Sigh after sigh
  Is gonna' pass by and by
Till I gaze into your brown eyes again Awe, love is gonna' fly on the wind [Bridge:]Am C F C And all the things I've seen and the places that I've been Am C F C They don't mean a thing since I found you Am C All that matters now F C Since I won your love somehow Am F Em G Are these plans that I keep making not to lose you So sleep babe till the moon slips away I'm hoping all your dreaming comes true When you rise with the day I might not have too much to say But you know that doesn't mean that I don't love you Awe, you know that doesn't mean that I don't love you [Repeat Bridge and 1st Verse]
